I'm new to this, and I crashed my p3 standard. Any tips on how to repair this?

It looks like the top and bottom plastic pieces separated, and I'm not sure how to get the piece of plastic holding it together to become unstuck

While it's not necessarily easy to do, it'll be easiest to slide that tab back under if you remove the top of your shell. Perhaps opening just that side of the shell would be sufficient too. If you need instructions on opening the shell, I have some good videos linked here.

Unfortunately no, the plastic piece holding the top of the camera or whatever snapped at one point. From my understanding I need to order a replacement and try to replace it. I tried super glueing it but the glue fell apart after the test flight to make sure everything was still working after the initial crash. Other than that I already fixed the rubber pieces and the plastic no drop things. The camera and gimbal is fine I think. It's just the plastic that snapped and the body that came apart a bit.

Ouch!, I bet somebody will give you some repair tips on that one.
So while your not flying, you got some more reading to do, just kidding.
But, look into IMU, after crashes.
I thought this was a good post.

I found the one I was looking for, similar repair, what else are you going to do at work, search the forums.

Purchase "plasti aid " it's great to repair broken p3 plastic parts or any plastic parts for that matter.
Can find it on Amazon

Thanks for the reply, is the grey actually plastic?
I have never really paid attention.
I don't really have much money anyway.
